Goldeye CL-008 Cool - High-performance high-speed QVGA InGaAS camera

 

The Goldeye CL-008 is one of the fastest QVGA resolution short wave infrared (SWIR) cameras with Camera Link interface. With frame rates up to 344 fps at full resolution, versatile application fields can be addressed and processes can be sped up strongly. To enable low-noise imaging in the spectral range from 900 nm to 1700 nm, the camera is equipped with a nitrogen filled cooling chamber. It enables the thermo-electric cooler (TEC) to operate the sensor at a temperature of 5o C and avoids condensation.

The standardized Camera Link interface with GenCP support and comprehensive I/O control options simplify the connection to your software solution and the synchronization with other system components.

The integrated thermo-electric sensor cooling and several on-board image correction features contribute to the Goldeye's outstanding image quality.

  • Defect pixel correction
  • Background correction
  • Automated and manual sensor temperature management via TEC features
  • Temperature status indicator
  • Temperature specific events

General features

  • Automatic exposure time control
  • Gain (analog)
  • I/O configuration and trigger control
  • Stream hold (deferred image output)
  • Storable user sets
  • Firmware update in the field
  • Region of interest (ROI) control, Look-up table (LUT) support, as well as various Auto-Features
  • Adjustable pixel clock frequency
  • Support for Camera Control (CC ports) signals

Goldeye cameras are compatible with Allied Vision's Vimba SDK. Moreover, in combination with our AcquireControl software, extensive image analysis functions are available:

  • Pseudo color LUT with several color profiles
  • Auto contrast
  • Auto brightness
  • Analyze multiple regions (rectangular, circle) within the image
  • Real-time statistics and histogram display

Goldeye cameras are very sensitive in the SWIR spectrum. They can be used in an extended operating temperature range. Thanks to temperature stabilization and integrated image correction, Goldeye cameras achieve an outstanding image quality with little noise and a high dynamic range. They are well-suited for many typical SWIR applications in various industry branches:

  • Semiconductor industry: solar cell and chip inspection
  • Recyling industry: plastics sorting
  • Medical imaging, sciences: hyperspectral imaging, microscopy, OCT
  • Metal and glass industry: thermal imaging of hot objects (250 °C to 800 °C)
  • Agriculture industry: airborne remote sensing
  • Printing industry: banknote inspection
  • Electronics industry: laser beam profiling
  • Surveillance and security: vision enhancement (for example, through fog or night vision)
